While the Ford F-150 is a formidable opponent, there was really no reason why Ram would notice it since it does not come with a diesel engine but that will change real soon as Ford reveal their plans for a diesel powered Ford F-150.
According to Ford, the upcoming 2018 Ford F-150 will be coming with a diesel engine. The diesel model will be powered by a 3.0 litre Powerstroke diesel engine that will be offering about 240hp and will be mated to a 10-speed auto transmission.
After working with Land Rover, Ford thinks that they know what they need to make the Ford F-150 into a desirable diesel powered vehicle. The diesel powered Ford F-150 will be coming in to compete with models like the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel model.
With everything that Ford has to offer along with the diesel engine, we could see how the Ford F-150 could become a real threat to Ram.
